One of my first memories is watching live pictures as Armstrong stepped onto the moon. It was something momentous: the people involved used technology to achieve the impossible. I think that was the start of my fascination with technology, and how it enables and empowers us.
I’ve worked alongside computers at all levels. I was the de facto expert in the days of one computer in an office of 20, and now provide full-time in B2B IT support at Flex IT. The thing that I’ve found most rewarding is helping other people leverage technology; to learn and grow; to achieve their own moon landings.
Outside of work, I’m something of a DIY-er – I have a cement mixer in my garage and an excessive array of tools for my car. I also enjoy modern jive partner dance, which offers an interesting parallel: just like in business, when the enthusiasm, experience and creativity of two partners come together, that's when the magic happens.
I come from a mixed IT background working for both internal and external IT Support, supporting Microsoft and Apple environments.
My role at Flex is to look after the project side of things. As a general rule I look after anything “New”, this includes email migrations and system deployments. I also support the technical team and assist with day to day support issues.
In my spare time if you don’t see me behind a computer screen, I will be sat behind a drum kit. I am in a couple of local bands in the Oxfordshire area, playing anything from Beatles, Chuck Berry, Queen through to Amy Winehouse. If you want to talk computers or music pull me aside!
I have over 13 years Corporate management experience, working in various Commercial roles across Pricing, Contract Management and Product Development. After taking a career break to raise my family, I gained my AAT L2 and am currently studying for my L3.
Within my role as Office Manager my responsibilities are to manage the accounts & invoicing, process all license and warranty renewals and to work with the Technical team to keep all client product and pricing updated. It’s a great job that puts me in touch with all aspects of the business and working to ensure we get it right first time, every time.
Outside of work I like to spend time with my family and having two young boys means there’s rarely a quiet moment! I’ve had a lifelong passion for horses so when I do get some time to myself, I like to get out for a hack in the countryside. My happy place!
IT Support Engineer
I moved to England in 2008 and after trying a few different career options I began working in IT in 2015. I'd always enjoyed computers and video games growing up, so when I built my own gaming computer and it worked, I thought maybe a career in IT could be for me!
Since doing an IT apprenticeship, I have worked with many different technologies and services, and I have specialised in monitoring client infrastructures and helping clients with any issues they may have. My role at Flex as IT Support Engineer means I get involved in all levels of support, as well as assisting Jamie with project work. I am also one of Flex’s VMWare specialists.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing guitar as well as playing video, card and board games. I am a big motorsport fanatic, I take part in the Armed Forces Kart Championship (Endurance class) which races all over the country. I enjoying head banging to rock music, and going for walks with my wife Sadie, our son Tav, and our dog Ozzy.”
